Hear what our students have to say about their experience at LSE Summer School

I think the experience and the exposure to different teaching styles has given me a different perspective about life and what I really want to do.

Watch video: Students from across the globe share their experience of spending a summer in London with LSE Summer School.

From studying at a world-class institution, to making new friends from all over the globe, to being introduced to a diversity of new ideas, to the simple joy of seeing the world in one of the world's great global cities, 96% of our students from 114 nationalities would recommend the programme to a friend.

Here's what a few of them had to say:

"Originally, I planned on coming to LSE on my own but it turned out that I had a few other friends here as well because Princeton highly recommends the programme.  The LSE Summer School was everything I was hoping for. It couldn't be better! The course level is perfect; the content is challenging enough but it's not as if Summer School runs your life. You still have plenty of time to see the city and to enjoy learning"

IR207: Development in the International Political Economy

"I decided to come to the LSE Summer School because it’s a very prestigious institute for economics, social sciences and political sciences. The class sizes are quite small so it's easy to talk to the teachers and to find out more about the areas that you're interested in"

"The LSE Summer School exceeded my expectations… it's not only about intellectual development, but it's also about social development as well. LSE creates a good environment so that you can excel in your studies and make new friends"
